The Kuala Lumpur Tower is a tall tower located in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. Its construction was completed in 1995. It is used for communication purposes and features an antenna that reaches 421 m (1,381 ft). The roof of the pod is at 335 m (1,099 ft). The rest of the tower below has a stairwell and an elevator to reach the upper area, which also contains a revolving restaurant, providing diners with a panoramic view of the city.
Races are held annually, where participants race up the stairs to the top. The tower also acts as the Islamic falak observatory to observe the crescent moon which marks the beginning of Muslim month of Ramadhan, Syawal, and Zulhijjah, to celebrate fasting month of Ramadhan, Hari Raya Aidilfitri and Aidiladha. The tower is the highest viewpoint in Kuala Lumpur that is open to the public, and it competes with the nearby Petronas Towers for being the main landmark of Kuala Lumpur.
